Deanne Butterworth will share her ongoing practice which is preoccupied with the investigation of movement and how it relates to the physical, emotional, and sonic space in which it is located.

Deanne is interested in imagination as a tool for the creation of different scenarios leading to multiple meanings for both audience and the performer. The workshop will explore starting dancing, looping, repeating,  phasing, speaking, not speaking, spacing, interrupting, layering, stopping, restarting reflecting, stillness and silence. Participants will work with set movement material and improvisational tasks as well as explore methodology from her recent works.

Practice Sharing is an arena to enter into artistic dialogue, an opportunity to share skills, a space for physical thinking, and a way to engage in different creative practices.

Facilitated by established local dance artists and visiting guest artists, the sessions are presented in an open, workshop-style format that may move between dancing, writing, choreographic research and discussion.
